If you like your breweries hip, urban, and lively Spencer Devon Brewing in Fredericksburg is up your alley. Better food than your average brewery/restaurant, too.
Clean industry at Ardent Craft Ales, Richmond
Not Richmond’s most famous brewery-taproom but definitely a spot that any self-respecting Virginia beer lover has to try.
A river-centric vibe at James River Brewing, Scottsville
This river-themed micro brewery boasts a batteau poler on its logo, and the beer gets high marks. Other aesthetics could use a boost, though.
Parkway Brewing Company hops to it in Salem
It may be way out there but this brewery is worth the drive for their great logo, beer label designs, and solid flavor. However, an in-town taproom would help.
